    How long does it take for the SP's to be put into the todo list? I added them all in around 12:00, and it's 3:40 and I'm not seeing any of them in my todo list yet..

    If you are adding SP's via the Tivo itself, theuy should appear in the To-Do list immediately. If you are using TivowebPlus, that can take a while.

    Yes, I added them through Tivowebplus... it's now 9:00, and they still aren't showing up

    Not that long. 5 minutes...tops.

    Double check your settings, and look in the recording history. Scroll into the future where you know you have a show that should record. See if it's listed there as "won't record". If so, it will tell you why.

    What a pain in the 2#%@#. I realized my 6.2-01-2-151 DTivo subscriptions were messed up when trying to find a new show I knew had already started. I've gone through and recreated most of the 20+ passes I had, but some aren't in the guide yet for this season...
    Anyway, one issue I wanted to mention. I'm a fan of the Good Eats series on Food Network and have most of them saved. After recreating the season pass for it, I found I had TWO separate folders for the series, one with 23 episodes and the rest in the other. Is that somehow releated to the series codes changing?

    Also found a error code 32 when I tried to set up a new season pass for Grey's Anatomy. Not sure if it's related or not though.

    Edit: read more of this thread and see now that the dual folders thing is common with this problem.

    My new Series 3 Tivo (I'm on Comcast's cable system) has been working perfectly until tonight! I'm ready to toss it out the freaking door! So, I was expecting CSI Miami - season premiere to Tivo and went down to watch it and although I have a season pass and all the episodes show up in the upcoming shows NONE of them were selected to record! It showed the new ones, I have it set for first run only and nothing recorded. So I started checking my other season passes and they all show the new upcoming episodes but none of them were selected to record at all! I think Cold Case might have been but I may have selected it manually before deciding to do new Season Passes. I thought maybe it was because everything changed to HD so the Channel #'s are different, but in the cases where it still had both the old Channel # and the new HD one, the old one wasn't even selected to record.

    I'm not out of memory on my Tivo - we're good about clearing stuff out and I'd just cleaned it out so I wouldn't have an issue this week. I even had a problem with Biggest Loser - I have it set up as a new Season Pass with the new name - it recorded the first show and then when I checked it tonight the next new show wasn't even scheduled to record. I've received no messages, got no error message at all, had no recording conflicts at all - anyone know what the heck the problem is? Oh, and it won't let me delete the old Season Passes at all so now I have those in there and probably have conflicts like crazy should it decided to try to record two at once! I did move all the ones I want to delete to the lowest priority.

    Anyone else notice since this guide data change, episodes moved via MRV to another dvr do not group up?

    Heck, episodes on the same DVR that pre- and post-date the guide change don't group up (at least not with each other).

    But not grouping on MRV would make sense. MVR grouping only works in the show (not the specific season) is the in current guide data of the receiving TiVo. Since the guide data change non of the old programs "shows" exist anymore.

    I've got two groups for a bunch of my season passes, 1 with the pre-change episodes and 1 with the post-change ones.

    Although I may have noticed something interesting. I think 4 or so of my old pre-change Mad Men episodes jumped folders, possibly because they got rerun (but not re-recorded) and that somehow updated the stored guide data.
    I'll have to see if any other show's episodes seem to jump from the pre- to the post- folders.

    Yeah, but that's a one time thing. I used folders.tcl to combine those folders, and newly recording episodes are now grouping up correctly, with no duplicate folders.
    Not always. A few of my boxes have no guide data (they were installed, C&DE, and never hooked to the sat stream, and used as "mrv dumb terminals". They always grouped fine, and there's no way they had any guide data at all.

    I'm talking about MRV'ing an episode the same day it was recorded, to another tivo, with a folder for that show, containing episodes of that show that aired since the guide data change.
    For example. Tivo A has a group for smallville. Thanks to an unrelated glitch, it failed to record last night. I noticed it 5 minutes past show start, and set a manual recording. Tivo B was live buffering the necessary channel, so I set a recording there, as well, and this one got the whole episode.
    Now, since Tivo A is the one that is storing the current season of smallville, I "MRVed" the recording from Tivo B. Two copies of the episode now on Tivo A, the original incomplete recording, made by tivo a, grouped up in the folder correctly, and the complete recording moved from Tivo B, out in the NPL, all by its lonesome.
    Before this guide data change, shows moved by mrv have always grouped up correctly. Since the guide data change, no single show moved by mrv has grouped up.

    Tonight Stargate Atlantis was on.

    Luckily I was sitting in from of my TV.

    Unit did not record the new episode.
    Check To Do List. Didn't even mention that the episode existed.

    Tried to add a second season pass for Stargate Atlantis as others have suggested, but recognized I had a season pass and only allows modification of the existing pass.

    I did have the issue where I was unable to delete season passes. A restart of the unit resolved this.

    So, here are my questions?
    * Tivo is not getting new epsodes what do I do?
    * Can there be an official message from Tivo on the issue and what should be done?
    * Should I do a repeat guided setup?
    * Do I need to call and have the unit replaced?

    I had to recreate my SP's for The Shield, Heroes, NCIS and Smallville. Will probably have to the same for ER.

    I just got off the phone with a CR at DirectTV and he/they had no idea what I was talking about or a solution. Guess I'll string the 100' phone cord up and have them all dial in for new software.

    I noticed earlier this week that all season passes for shows after oct 6 except for Hereos were going to stop working. I had to setup seperate season passes to record those shows.

    Little People Big Wolrd. New season starts October 13, but my Tivo didn't pick it up. There's also a Little People special where Matt goes to Iraq. That wasn't picked up either.

    I may have a new wrinkle.

    I have a unit on 6.4a (I finally let it up rev from 6.3b after being disconnected for 732 days in a desperate and failed attempt to fix the rebooting issue).

    I have redone some of the SPs due to the problems reported in this and other threads. Fine.

    But today, I had SPs that were predicting recordings in the history page, and I then immediately reordered (reprioritized) the SPs. I then immediately went back to the history page again, to discover that 8 of about 15 SPs were now claiming no eps available, when they were fine before I did that. And I think that at least a few of these are SPs that I already redid once after first having this problem. Grrrrr!:mad:

    So there may be a Tribune or other guide data issue, or there may not. But if there were, why would a SP reorder skunk 8 of my SPs? That seems very much more like a general incompatibility on the Tivo side, at least to me.

    Did you delete the old SPs? I kept them around, JIC. I'm now getting two separate groupings for some shows, particularly The Daily Show. It seems like maybe the new shows are getting grouped together and the reruns are getting grouped separately.

    I will keep a sharp eye on them and replace them as necessary. I think what happens when you replace a SP is that new recordings get their own new folder, and older recordings stay in an older folder (which is one reason why I will replace them ad hoc only when necessary).

    Pretty damned annoying, tho. If the new HD DVR could do slo-mo properly (what a joke) I would just throw in the towel and replace my two remaining HR10s. This and the reboot issue are about all I can take. The HR20 I have is remarkably more solid than either of them.
